Lake Chabot and a Sunset (2 images)

I went up to Fairmont Ridge with my camera club a few days ago and the sunset was just stunning!   For this post, I’m including two photos.  Please click on the blog to see both images.  Thank you!

Picture 1:  Lake Chabot – Looking east from Fairmont Ridge at Lake Chabot (named after Anthony Chabot…detail below) which is a reservoir serving the East Bay in the San Francisco Bay Area.  You can see Mt. Diablo in the distance which is the Bay Area’s tallest peak at 3,848 feet.

Picture 2:  Sunset over the SF Bay – Looking west from Fairmont Ridge over the SF Bay.

If you haven’t heard of Anthony Chabot, he was quite the forward thinker, and there are many places in the East Bay named after him.  If you like you can read more about him here in this Wiki.

Trees at Sunset (2 images)

Yesterday I went with my camera club up to a ridge line in the east bay hills for a sunset.  I have never been to this particular location, and I was really excited to find a new place for sunset photos.  Here I’m including two images…the first was looking east at the pink sky toward Mt. Diablo and the other was looking through to the west at the orange sky.  I took some liberties here with processing them.  I can’t help myself!

Crystal Ball Sunset

Yesterday evening was a beautiful sunset, so I thought I’d try a shot through the crystal ball.  I really like how this came out because the colors are so pretty.  And you know me and my color.  🙂   After trying several lenses, like four of them haha, it seems the macro lens worked best.  Other lenses were ok but there is just something about the macro……..
